Default How Many Days at Sea do u have?

My suspicions are that we have quite a well travelled bunch of cruisers here at CruiseMates. So.. to confirm or refute my "theory" here's little poll.

How many days at sea do you have under your belt??

Let's not count those in the military, or those who've been set adrift in the middle of the ocean by their spouses.

I THINK it's around 208 for me. But I have a feeling that number will seem low by the time this is done <G>

I also think I may know which poster is going to have the most. Now no fibbing.

An even 100 for me, 125 for CruiseCam. Still low numbers. Wait 'til Ray and Helen log in.

I'm at 152 and agree that will be towards the low end when some of the others check in!

Ray and Helen will probably have the most.

Do days in port pre- or post-cruise count?

On our Rotterdam trans-Atlantic my sister-out-law (it was her first cruise) did the math on the average number of cruises for everyone at the table. 57, including her one. Don't know about the days. Or whether anyone fibbed.

For me, I would guess about 300. Which certainly is not enough !!!

My records indicate that Helen and I have now, after the Summit a total of 743 days at Sea. That includes the ship's stay in a port more than one day. We have visited six (6) continents. Only leaving Antarctica that we have not visited. And really personally I don't wish to go there. Too Cold and only Penguins, birds and ice there. Many travelers say that is the place to go. Well that is my opinion and I am sticking to it.

With only 14 days at sea, I guess I have a lot of catching up to do. Who knew that cruising could be so much fun. Phyll

I have 131, which to me is not nearly enough! I thought that was a pretty good total but I'll have to start cruising 3 or 4 times a year and really long cruises to catch up with some of these folks!!! :-) Susue

I'm just going to try hard enough to last long enough to spend as much time cruising as Ray & Helen have. GREAT couple... hope Mrs. Kuki and I are roaming the world when we get to their age!!
Ray & Helen.. not like you need to be told, but GO GET EM!!

WEll, Mr. Boudreax ...

The only continent Queeg and I are missing (we had six on our last set of passports) is Antartica. If we bring the Tabasco, will you consider penguins ???

If we didn't have to pay airfare we could have a lot more.

Is Ray and Helen's 743 a combined total or for each?

I have 359 days at sea myself, 49 cruises to date and NONE until Aug 24.

84 days for Timberhead and I. But of course the total is a lot more if we could count all of our sailboat sea days, then the number would be around 480 not counting the day trips. But I guess you canít count the nights on board a sailboat in the middle of a lake. <g> Even with all of those days we are still way behind Helen and Ray, gives me something to look forward to in the future.

I've only met two other people who have more sea days than Ray and Helen. Between them they had close to 5000, but then they're both retired Cruise Directors <G>
